FS544 - Happy Birthday

Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper, Ann Greenspan (aka yaleann7).

I chose this card from her gallery as my inspiration:

I focused on Ann's:
-floral theme
-three 'scribble' roses
-black sentiment
-circle elements

I changed:
-no black stripes

I die cut the flowers and leaves to create masks and then blended distress inks with a sponge dauber (smaller than an ink blender and gives a bit more control).  I spritzed with water for some texture and then cut a circle out of the panel. I inlaid the 'happy' into the circle and then popped the circle up from the panel, where I had stamped the rest of my sentiment.

I used:


  1. Lovely card Ardyth - love the fact you used the die cut as a stencil, and also cut and layered the large circle. Unfortunately the video would not play - it said it was private. :-(

  2. Wow.. I must admit that the most inspiring person I ever came across on Instagram is YOU! Those small videos make me want to try it..Right away! I think clean and simple.. has to have a synonym.. Ardyth!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous Ardyth. Love the stitched dies and your beautiful soft inking.

  4. Wow wow wow this is gorgeous. Fabulous design x

  5. Wow, so much texture with the layers. It compliments your bold graphic and colorful style so well. Gorgeous.

  6. Gorgeous those beautiful flowers.
